Biography

Obscurant is a Finnish band that performs death metal in its more atmospheric and melodic vein. The band came into existence in late 2000 as a solo-project of Luukkainen but after songs really started coming, Obscurant slowly grew into a fulltime band with a full line-up. The line-up was completed with Luukkainen on vocals and lead guitar, Kaakkolahti on guitar, Simonen on keyboards, Honkonen on bass and Järvinen on drums.

Obscurant played live two times in the autumn of the year 2001. Due to the amazing response from the audience, the band decided to contact Woodcut Records to see if they had interest towards this kind of metal act. They did. Obscurant signed the contract that Woodcut offered them and the things got going on full speed.

The recording sessions of Obscurant’s debut full-length album took place at Sundi-Coop Studio in the break of March and April 2002. Obscurant spent two weeks recording and mixing the ten actual tracks and a couple of bonus songs. The result was the album that bears the name “Lifeform: Dead”.

In late 2003 Honkonen announced that he would quit playing in Obscurant due to various reasons. Besides searching for a new bass-player, Luukkainen kept on composing material for the second full-length album. As things seemed to be going quite smoothly, Obscurant booked some studio time for August 2004 from Sam’s Workshop.
